And this is what it all come back to. Sportiness is now 2nd priority in the five. It didn't use to be since the cars had a platform with priority on sportiness and then there were options to dial it up further. The F10 is built on a platform to be a luxury car first and it also lacks the options to really make the most of what sportiness can be had ( hence the popularity of Dinan, ACS etc springs ). It's more than sufficient for what most want of this car and still better or close enough to the best of it's competitors but fails to entice many in the group that are looking for E60 or higher level of sporty feel.
